Large rooms, spacious bathrooms, quiet except for the roar of the beautiful ocean. We would have liked to be able to rent a move and have a microwave in the room, for the cost of the room, but the continental breakfast was good.

Just got back last night from a weekend stay (one night) at this perfect hotel. I was so excited to find about it when I called the vacation rental place next door and was told they have a 3 night min. and to call Beach terrace Inn. I am so glad the receptionist there gave us the number. I am still stumped that this hotel didn't come up on my google search for oceanfront hotel search. Anyway, I wanted to stay at least another night. we stayed in room 58 a King oceanfront overlooking the pool and beach. It had a wet bar with fridge but no microwave which would have been nice as we were traveling with a toddler. It was absolutely perfect. The continental breakfast was nice, the staff was very friendly. I can't wait to go back with my family and relax and play at the beach. Carlsbad is wonderful. Gotta get back soon.

My husband and I had opportunity to stay at this little gem for three nights. If you are looking for something "on the beach" this is the place, Had our room been any closer to the beach we would have been in the water. The recently renovated rooms and baths are very spacious and well maintained. The staff is friendly and attentive. In addition to miles of beach we were able to walk to everything as the Village of Carlsbad is literally down the street. We cannot wait to return. This hotel is a wonderful alternative to the big box hotels. Try it - you will love it!

I just returned from a fabulous weekend at the Beach Terrace Inn. I hesitate to write about this gem, because I'm tempted to keep it a secret. I understand that it has undergone major renovations, but since it was my first stay, all I know about are the luxurious rooms, soothing lobby/lounge and incredibly helpful staff that we enjoyed for the weekend.

The first thing I saw in the morning were the waves out my window. And I mean the very first thing before my head left the pillow. We saw lots of dolphins at play in the beautiful Carlsbad waves. The Inn is built on the bluff, so you have hotel/sand/water. Comfy lounge chairs around the pool that overlook the beach with a wind protection, so you can be comfortable on chilly days.

While we were in walking distance of highly rated restaurants and shopping, we chose instead to order out for pizza (the food from Paradise Pizza was outstanding.)

We have already booked our favorite room for next year. It's a place we hope to return for many years to come.

I was pretty annoyed to have my room reservation of a full ocean view downgraded to a partial ocean view due to a "burst pipe." Funny how no plumbing trucks were on the scene during any point of our stay. Plus, we got moved to a main thoroughfare below reception and next to the main stairway. It was so brightly lit, I couldn't get the room dark and slept horribly.

Anticipating a vacation and having unexpected problems stand in the way of your well earned relaxation is terrible. We understand how frustrating it can be and are very sorry for our role in it. Unfortunately, the 'burst pipe' was an unavoidable issue and, in fact, the room is not yet in working order. At such an intimate hotel (of only 48 rooms), we have limited alternatives on the rare occasions that problems arise and we feel terrible the available option was not satisfactory. We are eager to make it right for you, however. We now know the wine and fruit sent to your room was not enough and we'd be happy to discuss with you what else we might do to convince you of our sincere regret. Please call the hotel directly at 760-729-5951 or 800-433-5415 and ask for Kent or Chris.
